    Panasonic DMW-RSL1, Remote Control

    Hi all,

    does anyone know if the Panasonic DMW-RSL1 is the same as the Panasonic DMW-RS1 with the only difference being the length of the cable?

    There's a substantial price difference...

    Thanks,

    Peter

    Peter,

    From a thread I was looking at on DPR, no the remotes for the FZ50 are different and will not work with the G1.

    Cheers,

    Thanks, I suppose that it's from these kind of items that they get their profit.

    Hello, I think the difference between the two remotes is the "lock"-feature.

    My cheap-version (5Euro) for the FZ50 worked at the G1.*
    The RSL1 I have for 25, - Euro auction on eBay, because I have a good pressure point wanted - the RSL1 has unfortunately no better.

    I got an cheap chinese remote from a company called Satechi via Amazon. It seems sort of flimsy but works fine on my G1. Putting the button halfway down locks focus; pushing hard takes the picture. The cable is 3 meters. The price was US$17.95 and it came promptly.

    These might work:

    Not bad for 5 bucks, and the second one has the lock feature too (out of stock though)

    If it helps anyone: I found out that the remote cable I bought 4 years ago for my Digilux 2 (the Leica original cable) fits my G1 too, and works perfectly. Saved me a lot...

    So, it might seem Panasonic doesn´t necessarily change the connector standard with every new model, like some others do. Great!
